The spokeswoman said there were no injuries from the collision.

An Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) spokesperson said the organisation was gathering further information into the collision. 

"A landing Extra EA300 aerobatic aircraft is reported to have come into contact with a Guimbal Cabri light helicopter, which was preparing to take-off," they said.

"The ATSB will request reports from the pilots of both aircraft before determining whether to conduct a transport safety investigation.

"We do not have confirmation of the level of damage to either aircraft at this point."
